    So I have a lot of things planned for this year such as music festivals and holidays abroad over the summer and I've also got a job interview tomorrow. If it all goes well and I get the job how do I tell my manager that I need around 14 days off. I always find it awkward asking. I know I'm jumping ahead of myself but thats just how I am at times.

    Normally they ask if you have any holidays or such booked during the interview, best thing to do is be honest about it. Nothing worse than mentioning it after you start and not being able to have the time off.

    Depending what kind of job it is, you may be able to work your hours around your commitments, so you wouldn't actually have to lose out on hours (or take a holiday) because of them. 14 days is a lot, and you should be aware that sometimes you can't take so many days close to each other- ie in my Mum's job you can only take 7 days per quarter unless in exceptional circumstances (although having said that they do let her take it unpaid, or let her make up her hours before/after).

    If they ask at the interview, tell them! But if you do get the job, just make sure you let them know before you start.
    Good luck
